Is it just me or does Orgin blow the f*** away Steam in terms of download speed

Lamentably this isn't Rapture, and having been fighting with an LMG for kills for the last hour condescending is the "cheerful" end of the scale.

I get the same results with Origin. It does lie, but still doesnt explain why I download the games in less time.


Again you likely aren't on a steam server that can handle your bandwidth if its less than origin. I honestly wouldn't know as my 2.4MB/s is likely a lot easier to saturate. What kind of network monitor results are you getting? Are they similar? If steam is slower in the monitor than origin, you should try a different server location in steam. Remember that the server location doesn't necessarily need to be super close. Ping doesn't matter all that much with downloading.



Yes, I'm getting better speeds with Origin.

and the download server is San Jose, which is the city I live on.


You live on San Jose? Damn, n****, you must be huge.

PC's the only way I play Battlefield unless forced otherwise, and oh boy does my poor box need an upgrade for this one. As for the username, I'll get back to you once I decide on the new one. The current one seems to confuse people on VOIP and it's time to retire it.
